Now that we have had the Bosham Masters, the Regatta, Junior Week and the Classic Boat Revival, the school holidays are over and Autumn is on its way.
So, are you thinking of things to do during the non-sailing season, to keep you fit and keep your brains, also, in good form?
Well Scottish Dancing of course! We dance during Autumn, Winter and Spring on every other Wednesday evening, in the Club.
Some of us have danced, at times, most of our lives. Others have joined us never having danced before, but game to try. We are relaxed and want to enjoy ourselves. It gives us exercise, lots of laughter when things don't go right and we need to start again. A chance to meet a different group of Club members. For those who live on their own or are new to the Club, it is a great reason to come to the Clubhouse on evenings during the winter.
YOU DON'T have to -
Have done it before
Bring a partner
Own a kilt
Know anyone who comes
IT DOES HELP if you -
Can count (preferably up to 20)
Know your left from your right
and have some sense of rhythm.
I do explain everything when you first come. There is a handout to remind you of what I said. I talk through and walk through every dance before we start it.
The first Wednesday is the 19th September, thereafter it is -
Oct 3rd, 17th, 31st: Nov 14th, 28th: Dec 12th
We start at 7.30pm and finish about 10pm.
Although I can and do teach anyone who is new to dancing, it is not a "class" as such and if you can't come to every one that is not a problem, just come when you can. I suggest you wear layers - shirt/blouse and sweater/cardigan as one can get quite warm. Also, flat and softish shoes which are comfortable to dance in.
